Physical Education



 “Just believe in yourself. Even if you don’t, pretend that you do and, and some point, you will.”Venus Williams

Our aims for Physical Education are to:


  • Provide a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum that satisfies the needs of the current National Curriculum and provide pupils with appropriate challenge with acceptable risk
  • Develop a whole school approach to physical development which takes pupils through progressive stages of learning and challenge, enabling them to fulfil their potential, develop competence and control in the gross and fine motor skills that pupils need to take part in PE and sport.
  • Ensure pupils have the opportunity to demonstrate that they know and understand how to apply their competence and make appropriate decisions for themselves by challenging pupils to select and use skills and tactics appropriately.
  • Provide pupils with opportunities to use imaginative ways to express and communicate ideas, solve problems and overcome challenges, both as individuals and as part of a team or group




All pupils are entitled to a progressive and comprehensive physical education programme which embraces current National Curriculum and the statutory EYFS Framework and considers individual interests and needs.

The school provides all pupils with the entitlement of 2 hours high quality Physical Education a week. This it delivers through 2 lessons of 60 minutes duration. The time-table and scheme of work is centrally planned by the PE leader (Anna Griffin). We work closely in partnership with with GetSet4PE and YMCA Leeds.


The school has created a clear, progressive, skills-based curriculum.


Long Term Plan

 Out of School Hours Learning


There are two elements of Out of School Hours Learning.


These are


  1. Regular lunch time (football with Mr Gleeson) and after school clubs (run by Primary Influence)

These change each term and are chosen 


  1. Extra-curricular sporting events arranged by Natalie Robinson at North North West SSP

PE and sport premium funding:


All children and young people should live healthy active lives. The UK Chief Medical Officers recommend that all children and young people should take part in moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity for at least 60 minutes every day. Children with special educational needs and disabilities should take part in 20 minutes of daily activity.


The Childhood Obesity Plan says that at least 30 minutes of daily activity should take place in schools. We lay the foundations of positive and enjoyable participation in regular physical activity. All children should have equal access to high-quality PE provision and opportunities to experience and participate in a wide range of sports and physical activities. Academic achievement can improve in school because of the benefits children can gain.


Our school uses the PE and sport premium funding to help achieve these aims.


  • increasing all staff’s confidence, knowledge and skills in teaching PE and sport
  • increasing engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity and sport
  • raising the profile of PE and sport across the school, to support whole school improvement
  • offer a broader and more equal experience of a range of sports and physical activities to all pupils
  • increase participation in competitive sport
